£400-500 Gaming PC Build

Looking for a small case, that would ideally lay horizontally on a shelf (Until I move out). I'd like to be able to run some of the latest games at a reasonable setting. I will look to upgrade the PC at a later date so would need to be able to put extra RAM and HDD space, and ideally need the case to fit a GTX970 or Radeon 390.

Thanks in advance

Using slightly older haswell parts you could do this (hopefully the case would fit on your shelf in the correct orientation. I did want to use the silverstone RVZ01/RVZ02/ML08... but they + the necessary PSU make it very expensive if you intend to upgrade later.

This is ready for unimpeded 970/390 performance with the i5. I feel that if you were to go skylake your would would be dropping to a lesser graphics card but I will throw it together either way.

Never in stock though and it will go up once it is as it isn't available for pre order.
